About the VA Benefits Course

The presentation will provide an overview of the federal VA benefits, with a focus on two cash benefits and VA medical care or coverage. The two cash programs are:

  • compensation for service-connected disabilities
  • improved pension available based on age (65 and older) or for younger veterans with a non-service-connected disability

Participants will gain an understanding of how the VA supports veterans and their families through the cash programs and the VA medical system.

This webinar is not currently available in a live format, but it is available as a recorded webinar. The course is led by Tony Szczygiel, a Professor at the SUNY Buffalo School of Law where he has taught since 1982. His classroom courses include elder law and health law. Every semester, Tony also supervises the Foster Elder Law Clinic that he founded in 1983. The Clinic works closely with Legal Services for the Elderly, Disabled or Disadvantaged of WNY. As part of this work, the Clinic has represented scores of elderly or disabled clients, including many veterans.
